Singapore to have 1,000ha more parks and park connectors

In 15 years’ time, nine in 10 Singaporeans will be just a 10-minute walk away from a park. This enhanced City in a Garden vision was unveiled in the Draft Master Plan, which shows 1,000ha more parks and park connectors across the island. The expansion is an almost 13 per cent increase over the existing 7,800ha. This is part of a “conscious and deliberate effort” to protect natural spaces and increase ecological resilience, said Minister for National Development Lawrence Wong at the launch of the Draft Master Plan.
